News That 14-Year-Old Girl Was Killed At Oodua Rally Is False, Mischievous –Lagos Police



By Daniel Dafe, Abraka

Lagos State Police Command has said that the news making rounds that a 14 year-old girl was hit and killed by police bullet at the venue of the Oodua Republic Mega Rally in Ojota, Lagos on Saturday is fake news, false and mischievous.

Debunking the rumour, the Command in a statement signed by the
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said that “it’s a calculated attempt to create confusion and fears in the minds of the good people of Lagos State and the country at large.”

Adding that “the Command did not fire a single live bullet at Ojota rally today.”

According to the statement, “the said corpse was found wrapped and abandoned at a distance, far from Ojota venue of the rally, behind MRS Filling Station, inward Maryland, on the other side of the venue, with dried blood stains suggesting that the corpse is not fresh.”

The police said that “after a close look at the corpse, a wound suspectedly sustained from a sharp object was seen on it.”

The Command therefore urged “the general public to disregard the news and go about their lawful normal daily activities while investigation to unravel the incident will commence immediately.”

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police in the state, CP Hakeem Odumosu, commiserated with the family of the found deceased and assured that thorough investigation will be carried out.

The Command also warned against the spread of fake and unconfirmed stories as such could be dangerous and counterproductive.
